What is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal is a procedure whereby an indelible tattoo design is removed from the face or body of the patient. It is performed when patients want a different style or design for their tattoo or because of a change in their lifestyle.    

What are the types of Tattoo Removal procedures?

The most common type of tattoo removal is laser assisted tattoo removal. Other types include surgical skin grafting procedures, microdermabrasion, salabrasion or tattoo removal by rubbing with salt, cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen, tattoo removal using trichloroacetic acid that removes the top layers of skin and even surgical excision.  

Are Tattoo Removal procedures painful?

Numbing methods including injecting local anaesthetics, blowing cold air, placing ice packs and applying numbing creams are used during tattoo removal in order to minimise the pain involved.

When can I travel by air after Tattoo Removal?

Patients should not travel by air for at least one day after having nonsurgical tattoo removal procedures performed. Patients should wait for a few days after surgical tattoo removal procedures and get a certification from their surgeon that they are fit to travel by air.  

How long does recovery take after Tattoo Removal procedures?

It takes about one to two weeks to recover from nonsurgical tattoo removal procedures. Recovery from surgical tattoo removal procedures may take up to two months.

What after care is required after a Tattoo Removal procedure?

Patients should take any prescribed medications and apply any topical medication correctly. Patients should not wear tight clothing till the area is fully healed. They should not put any lotion or cosmetic on the treated area for at least three days. They should not get the area wet for at least two days. They should not expose skin to direct sunlight. They should not touch or scratch the treated area until completely healed.

Laser Erase - Medical Aesthetics Clinic in South Africa

Laser Erase

Trichardt Rd,, Lyttelton Manor, Centurion, 0157
Rating from 2 Reviews I’d say the results were good. It was all professionally doneMelissa, South Africa, 16 Jul 18

I started my tattoo removal with Laser Erase because the clinic was in the area we were scheduled to be that day. I’m actually from New Castle so it’s a very far drive from me. After the first session, I decided not to remove the tattoo after all. The clinic was clean and everything looked nice. I’m not sure if the price was fair, as I was quoted for R450 but then ended up paying R500 instead. I’d consulted a few different clinics and she had the best price. Some of the tattoos were definitely removed, so I’d say the results were good. It was all professionally done. I just don’t want to continue with the treatment. It’s a painful process for me.

Ctrl-Alt-Del Tattoo Lightening and Removals - Beauty Salon in South Africa

Ctrl-Alt-Del Tattoo Lightening and Removals

17 Redcliffe Close, Parklands, Cape Town, 7441
With the overwhelming popularity of tattoos over the last ten years, the market for effective lightening and removal has exploded. At Ctrl+Alt+Del, we use a Q-switched Nd:YAG, the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. During treatment, pulses of light from the laser break up the carbon molecules that make up tattoo ink. This allows your own body’s macrophages remove the molecules via the lymphatic system. With aQ-switched Nd:YAG laser, we can effectively treat both dark inks as well as colour. While results will be immediately visible, laser tattoo removal requires repeat visits to achieve the lightest results.Without the risk of chemical extractions, saline tattoos or CO2 lasers, we can help you by using an ND:Yag laser, a method that m ost plastic surgeons today consider to be one of the safest and most effective methods to remove or lighten tattoos in preparation for cover ups.

Liquid reversal tattoo removal is definitely the way to go. Quicker results than laser treatment. Skin is first numbed with anaesthetic to make it as painless as possible. Tattoo machine used to go over tattoo with removal chemicals Rene and staff were very efficient and welcoming and made an unpleasant procedure bearable. Very professional and explains all the ins and outs of the procedure, after care, etc. Friendly service making you feel comfortable and relaxed.
